The Bottom of the World

Antarctica 634Well, that one’s off the list finally.  If you don’t have your fill of penguins, then head on down to South Georgia Islands and the Antarctic continent.  We had a wonderfully put-together trip run by A&K on a beautiful ship, Le Boreal.  Other than two days of 30-40 foot swells, the weather held up for us.  The warmest day was on the peninsula where it reached 45F degrees.  Those red jackets had to be offloaded.  The Expedition leaders were top-notch and, for the most part, provided excellent lectures.  I actually learned how to use my SLR camera…finally.   This is a great trip to take if you really, really, want to see the Antarctic.  Not for the casual holiday…although you can swim in Whaler’s Bay if you feel so inclined.  I use the word “swim” liberally.
